Tasmanian Devil

For those that have raised toddlers and teenagers, I need to ask- Which is more challenging, a 3 year old or a 13 year old? The way I see it right now, 3 year olds need to be the most challenging people to deal with at any age. I am pretty sure the creator of the "Tasmanian Devil" was a parent of a 3 year old.
A part of me seriously thinks Andrew wakes up and plots ways to make my life harder. I think he has a special voice in his mind that maps out ways to follow me around and destroy everything I've just cleaned up, organized or put away. I also think God uses 3 year olds (specifically Andrew) to develop character and patience in parents. If I received a grade today for parenting, I would have gotten a D- (I'm just saying, it's been one of those days). I am counting the days until Andrew is 4 (1 month). I am hoping he slows down a little and learns that destroying things isn't the only way to go through life and that he will have a much happier and peaceful mother!
